The guide and tensioner is 19 ft lbs

 

the oil pan is 8 ft lbs

 

the front cover is 22 ft lbs except the lower center bolt which is 89 INCH lbs

 

Valve cover is 10 ft lbs

 

Crank bolt is 159 ft lbs

 

Let me know if you need more here or you can print the images from your other computer

 

Thanks

 

 

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
that what I need thanks, XXXXX XXXXX the sprocket bolt specs on the cam shafts seemed like more that the crank bolt when I took them off.
Expert:  George H. replied 2 years ago.

The crank bolt has an integral tapered washer so the breakaway torque is more than the tightening torque. The washer to pulley gets a dab of RTV

 

Cam sprockets are 75 ft lbs.

 

Let me know what I can do to help

 

Thanks

thanks George, only thing you could help with now is getting the oil and grease off the key board. but I don't think that falls in you area.: )
Expert:  George H. replied 2 years ago.

A little brake clean on a rag (don't spray the board) and rub lightly so you don't take the numbers off.

 

Don't tell the computer guys I answered that!

 

Let em know how I can help

 

Thanks
